Hi, David --

If you change those values from IBMISeriesX509 to IBMX509, I think you'll
find that you can use the IFS keystore and truststore. Java should look for
a jssecacerts file or, if it can't find that a cacerts file. You can also
specify the names of the keystore and truststore files via system properties
if you don't want to use jssecacerts or cacerts as the file name but I'd
recommend sticking with the default.

BTW, what JVM are you using?

I'll try to load a CA cert in .der file form into a DCM, if I can find one
that I can use.

I'm going down the DCM route now ... but I can't get my CA cert (.der
file) imported into the trust store.

I keep getting a "Parameter is not valid. Check for previous errors
may have caused this" error in the DCM and a problem is logged on
QSYSOPR. The same error happens on both V5R2 & V5R3.

I think I'm going to have to call IBM on this.

Anyone know what kind of certificate the DCM is expecting when
a new CA cert into the *SYSTEM certificate store?

The CA certificate was generated using this command on a Windows system
runing JVM 1.5:
keytool -export -alias <hostname> -keystore data/tls/certificate.p12
-storetype pkcs12 -file certificate.der
